Kindle First books are chosen by Amazon.com's editors from the most popular categories on Kindle. All free Kindle First books can be read by using the Kindle application on any compatible devices.

Alternatively, Amazon Prime members can also borrow one free book from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library. This library contains more than 800,000 books, including best sellers such as the Harry Potter series. Books borrowed from this library do not have a return due date. Amazon Prime members browsing the library from a Kindle Fire device can identify books that can be borrowed for free by looking for a Prime badge.
